A special Thank you goes out to my matey T for recommending this book to me, great choice mon amie. :) No review I’m capable of writing will do this book justice, so I’ll keep it short and sweet. Lips Touch is stunning and reminiscent of my childhood favorite, Robin McKinley, and it is because of books like Lips Touch, that I fell in love with the YA fantasy genre so many years ago. Filled with inventive lore, gorgeously flowing language, and unique illustrations, Lips Touch is nothing short of a delight.

Made up of a collection of three short stories, Lips Touch takes readers through a journey where kisses transform, sometimes beginning, and other times ending lives. While the first story, Goblin Fruit, was my personal favorite of the three, each story offers an enchanting and fantastical new lore, including goblins, demons, and soul snatching, body wrenching immortals. My only complaint is that each of these stories would have made for a fantastic book in their own right, and I wish that I could have read more about these characters, especially Kizzy.

i love that each of the three stories is somebody's favorite. it's just so interesting. i once tried to do a poll on here to calculate the breakdown, to see if it was really split evenly over the three stories (as it appears to be from the people i've spoken directly to). alas, i dont know how to get people to see and take the poll so it was completely unsuccessful. blah blah blah, anyway, this book is great! :)
